Samsung-1610-Mono Laser Printer – Workhorse printer that’s as reliable as anything

Don’t waste your time and money on inkjet again. Having suffered over the years with various inkjet printers, buying ink at an alarming rate and constantly unblocking them and still getting rubbish printouts, i needed a new approach to printing. Once i thought that laser printers were expensive and only for businesses, but now you can get printers like this for around £50, which considering how long toner lasts and how reliable these are, is very good value for money. I think that this printer is most suited for home users or very small businesses looking to print documents (e. It will come in useful for me for college, but an art student might still need an inkjet for printing out photos). The printer is fantastic for text and printing web pages, but photos don’t look too good, but who really prints out a lot of those anyway. Most photos nowadays stay on the computer. Print speed is quick, especially for the low price; 16ppm (on paper, no pun intended).

Workhorse printer that’s as reliable as anything. I’ve had this little printer for 1 year now, and i can safely say it’s the best printer i’ve ever had in a decade or so of home computing. Simple to install on xp, uses usb to connect to the computer, so it’s up and running in no time. It has a 3-second warm up time, and prints a sheet in about 5-7 seconds. Quality is comparable to any of the work printers i’ve ever used (those huge hp beasts), and it’s perfect for printing out a map from google, or a presentation, or just a letter. The minor caveat is that the plastic cover for the paper tray doesn’t fit perfectly but, frankly, i’ve taken it off and haven’t looked back since.

  • Workhorse printer that’s as reliable as anything

Quite good if you get a discount. I bought mine at 50% of retail to replace an ml1520 which needed a full replacement cartridge – original gave up after 2 powder refills and new ml 1610 was same price. Installation – very easy on xpspeed – it’s relatively fastoutput – no problems found with normal ms office, pdf’s and web site printsdrawbacks -the paper tray cover does not fit well and could allow unwanted content into tray (especially staples)i believe the all-in-one cartridge is ‘chipped’ and may expire before toner expired (ml 1520 was not), and the one supplied new is not completely full of toner. Also it’s not easy to refill with powder like ml 1520annoyance – paper output sometimes gets caught up in the guide of the top tray, it might be better off without it at alloverall – full retail price is a lot to pay for what you get, shame they stopped the ml 1520.
